Re: Yawn . . . How Many of These Will We See??

If only they took it a bit further down the Skipper route....

: I give this one a big yawn . . . So someone took the 2017
: Autavia, painted the dial midnight blue, and added an orange
: chronograph second hand. I can see doing this through Bamford,
: but I am wondering how many of these Limited Editions we will
: endure?

: Regarding this one from WOS -- It might have been a bit more
: interesting if it had been called a Skipper. As is, it's another
: in the series of Rindt; Siffert; UAE; Jack Heuer 85th; etc. Just
: people playing with the colors, some with more success and some
: with less.

: We saw some some creativity with the new Viceroy model, going with
: the two register look, but this Watches of Switzerland shows
: zero creativity, at least to my eye. Even worse, the blue dial /
: black bezel combination hurts my eyes, after we have seen the
: beauty of the blue bezel on the Skippers!!
